Vancouver ranked as world's most livable city

If you must live away from home, Vancouver is the best place in the world to live, according to the Britons who publish The Economist.

Or the least bad. The honour is based in large part on an absence of awfulness.

Despite what is described as a small petty-crime problem, Vancouver tops a list of 127 cities ranked from most livable to most dreadful by the magazine's Economist Intelligence Unit.

Calgary and Toronto are in a six-way tie for fifth place with Zurich and three Australian cities.

Montreal is in a four-way tie for 16th place with Paris, Hamburg and Tokyo.

No U.S. city is in the top 25.
